    Do you guys use a 5 gallon bucket as a reclaimer when nobody's looking?
    My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

    You still have to put the rag ended hose into the bucket Stoooopid! Everybody knows you could loose some of the freon. But in the bucket, you can store the freon and put it in a proper trash can for disposal into a landfill.

    If you don't put water in the bucket and sink the hose, fumes will escape. You then just pour the water into a washing machine with some Era and clean it up.

    You guys are so dense.

    Talking

    Refrigerant is heavier than air. Once in the bucket just put some air on top of the refrigerant and it will stay in there until you can recover it later or cap the bucket and throw it away....

    Do they make a reclaim rag that does not freeze into a big iceball?

    Nope. Absolutely not. Ever.





























    A 4 gallon milk crate is much better.
